Johannesburg — 2 nights

City of Light

Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kim Sacks Gallery and I was shot in Joburg. Let the collections at Apartheid Museum and Constitution Hill Human Rights Precinct capture your imagination. When in Johannesburg, make a side trip to see Pretoria Farmers Market in Pretoria, approximately Pretoria away. The adventure continues: try your luck at Montecasino, browse the different shops at Jack Friedman Eastgate, and contemplate the long history of Mandela House.

To see reviews, maps, photos, and other tourist information, go to the Johannesburg trip itinerary tool.

Denver, USA to Johannesburg is an approximately 25-hour flight. You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Denver to Johannesburg due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from Denver in April, with highs in Johannesburg at 75°F and lows at 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to catch the flight to White River.

Rainbow Nation
The landscapes of South Africa match its people in terms of diversity, richness, and vitality. From desert lands and coastlines, to the famous nature reserves sheltering the "Big Five" game animals, the country has natural charm in spades. The main cities provide a wealth of bars, clubs, shopping districts, and entertainment options to please the most demanding visitors, while traditional life can still be admired and respected in a collection of villages with beehive-style huts and an age-old cultural heritage. When in need of a minute to digest all that's happened during your trip to South Africa, sit down to a braai (traditional barbecue), and a bottle of wine made at one of the country's thriving vineyards.
